FQAs About This Schedule

 Why are you NOT offering Biology? 

 

We offer one science class per year.  

 

  • We choose that class based on feedback from parents and availability of teachers.  

  • We will probably offer Biology in 2023-2024

  • We are honored to partner with Eric Crouch, an electronics engineer and an outstanding educator, as our science teacher for this upcoming year.   

  • Introduction to Engineering will be an exciting adventure!  

  • Our students will learn science topics that are often de-emphasized in traditional high school science curriculums.

  • All teenagers are welcome, there is no pre-requisite to Intro to Engineering. 

      

Why are you offering BOTH World History and US History? 

 

  • US History is our primary offering for Social Studies for this upcoming year and we are delighted that Mrs. Youhas is teaching for us again! 

  • This class is targeted to students in 10th grade and above, but advanced 9th grade students may also take the course.  This course is taught at a college-prep level. 

  • We are on a 3-year rotation of the following Social Studies courses: 

 

- US History  (2022-2023) 

- Government (fall 2023) and Economics (spring 2024) 

- World History  

 

  • We love to offer excellent electives! 

  • We are delighted that Mr. Meredith is teaching for us again!  When he agreed to teach World History a year ago, he said he would not teach all of it in only two semesters. He wanted one semester to focus just on the past hundred years (both World Wars, etc). 

  • Any teenager is welcome to take the “World History since 1914” course.  There is not a pre-requisite; it is OK if you haven’t studied earlier World History yet. 

 

 

Will the Drawing class be for new or advanced students? 

 

  • Mr. Bayens welcomes both new and returning students to this class. 

 

  • He only allows 10 total students in his class, to enable the personalized feedback he gives to each. About half of those seats are already taken.  

  • If you want to tentatively register your teenager for this class, email leaders@bristolacademy.org with “Drawing Class” in the subject line. If you do this, we will reach out to you later this summer regarding how to confirm your registration. 

 


When and where will the Fun Fall Registration Event happen? 

 

  • Sometime in August, about a week before classes start, more info coming soon! 

 

Will there be any fun field trips this summer? 

 

  • Probably!  Stay tuned! 

 


 

What about this?  What about that? 

 

 

  • We expect to have our website fully updated, with many more details, by June 15th.
